QUIET SONG

 Classic Wit / Wheat Beer 4.3%

There are just 12 notes between any octave, then the octave repeats. All any artist can offer this world is how they see those 12 notes. That’s it. Having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen is why we are here. This classic wit sings quietly to an audience often looking the other way. You may not need this song year-round, but you’ll miss it when it’s gone.

Gentle stone fruit and zesty aromas, full pillowy soft texture leads to cherry and citrus notes mingling with light pepper and spice. A light bubblegum lingering sweetness from the yeast esters
